The family came into the Department’s attention on 5/18/2022 in response to allegations of neglect to 15 year old minor. Once specialist gained access to home, it was discovered that the home was in inadequate conditions. There was no hot water, no gas, the home was covered in fire hazards and animal excretions. Adult sibling notified specialist that minor has not been in school for over two years. She indicated that minor is autistic but high functioning. On June 9th DFS received an additional concern for the family. There are concerns about the home environment and possible drug use by maternal grandmother and uncle who reside in the home and also seem to be caring for minor. The family has previous history with the Department in Clark County as well as LA County. Minor is in need of an attorney to represent his legal wishes and rights as to permanency, placement, and visitation and to ensure appropriate services are in place. Next hearing(s): Plea 7/12/22 at 9:45 am in Courtroom 11.
